Help My Child Ate Some Ink
If a child writes on her hand will she get ink poisoning and vomit? Her hand is red and she's vomiting. She doesn't have fever or the poops.
My baby daughter put marker in her mouth and has ink in her mouth. Is there any marker ink that's toxic nowadays?
Yup: Missed the marker when you were baby-proofing the home, huh? This time do a loving, complete job; I'm busy. (bet u don't forget).
My 9-month-old ate a small piece of paper (printer paper with black ink) before I could catch her. Should I be concerned?
Not to worry: A small amount of paper with ink will likely not cause the least bit of harm. Have you baby proofed yet? :)
I ate black ink pasta for supper and have been blowing my nose ever since. Am I allergic and should I be concerned given I am nursing?
No, an no: That's most probably a reaction to the spices, wish you and your baby wellness
My toddler just pooped black almost muddy poop. My husband said it looks like she ate ink or dirt.
Black stools should: B checked for blood. Take a specimen in for testing. Other things that cause dark stools are peptobismal, spinich, beets. Risks for blood in stool are prolonged use of Advil (ibuprofen).Motrin, Aspirin or other similar drugs, history of gastritis or bleeding/clotting disorders.All the best.
I've been vomiting black dots not even the size of an ink drop and there's not a lot it's mixed with stomach acid and mucus I ate a Kit Kat and had so?
Monitor: If I understood correctly, you ate the kit kat then vomited the black dots. Those are probably traces of food (in your case, kit kat). The question is why are you vomiting in the first place. I don't know your medical history so if the vomiting persists, check with your pcp or call 911 in case of an emergency.
Unlikely: Some inks can cause a permanent mark which could be removed if it is on an obvious or embarrasing place. Many inks are water soluble and so the spot will fade. Infection is quite unlikey but be diligent and seek help if there is local redness or pain after a day or two.
I'll bet you don't: If you are compulsively drinking fountain pen ink, more than an ounce at a time, you might get sick from it. You should get with somebody who can help you with this compulsion -- your personal physician has heard much stranger and won't think the less of you. If somebody told you to stop writing note to yourself on your hand, stop worrying, it won't make you sick.
Yes: Some people are sensitive to the ink in tatoos....You can also develop severe infections from the ink. Check out this link. Good luck. Http://emedicine. Medscape. Com/article/1124433-overview.See 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: Given your history you could be suffering from irritant or allergic contact dermatitis. Contact allergens may be found at home or in the workplace and may include metals, glues, plastics, rubber, fragrances, topical antibiotics, preservatives, and chemicals used in hair-care and cosmetic products. Suggest avoidance of pen ink on skin if possible. See Allergist for further workup.
Mollusk: Squid is considered a mollusk (oyster, clam, abalone etc) although a free-ranging one. Its ink contains proteins which can sensitize people just like clams or oysters do.See 1 more doctor answer
Need more info: You don't tell me what allergies you suffer from. Several tattoo inks can cause skin allergies that present themselves as redness, oozing and itching an can be quite severe. If you have a problem with a tattoo, see an allergist or dermatologist for proper evaluation and treatment. Sometimes the only effective treatment is removal.
Probably not in U.S.: Most pen ink in the U.S. Is called non-toxic, because it is well known that kids put pens in their mouths. However, to be safe, one should buy pens marked non-toxic, or check the manufacturer's website. Better yet, don't put things into the mouth (except food/drink).
Depends: Depends on how much I guess but why would you even eat ink except by accident. Now could it kill you....I guess anything can kill you in "Costco" or bulk amounts. No worries.

If you mean tetanus: Toxoid injection, it is good for 10 years.
No: You get tetanus when a wound is infected by tetanus germs that make a toxin. Tetanus spores are widely distributed in nature, more often found in soil, but also in other areas. A pen ink would not carry tetanus spores, yet a wound created by a puncture wound (from a pen) could be contaminated from another source.
I got stabbed with a pen, now there's a little bit of ink under my skin. How do I get it out of there?
Healing: You don't. Your body will take care of this over time.
Your ink?????: I did not understand the question try again
No: Migraine is a complicated problem and can be triggered by lots of things that include certain foods, wine, perfumes, stress, and sleep deprivation. However Sharpie Ink on your skin is very unlikely to be a problem. Seek medical evaluation for migraines; there are a lot of treatment and preventive options.See 1 more doctor answer
